Hemingway was running for election to the office of Governor of New Hampshire.[1][2] He lost the Republican nomination in the primary on September 9, 2014.

"I am officially declaring my candidacy for governor. I am running for governor because I believe that our state motto 'Live Free or Die' is much more than just a catchy marketing slogan, it's much more than just something we can stamp onto license plates, rather it’s a statement of principal. It is woven into the very fabric of our state," Hemingway said.[2]

Debates

August 12 Republican debate

Republican candidates Walter Havenstein, Andrew Hemingway and Jonathan Smolin debated economic policy and casino gambling at Franklin Pierce University. Havenstein argued for a reduced tax on business profits and budget cuts that he claimed would produce 25,000 jobs by 2017. Hemingway proposed a flat income tax rate, a decreased corporate tax rate and reducing regulations to strengthen businesses. Smolin suggested that the state could reduce or eliminate college tuition to keep young workers in New Hampshire.[4]

The three primary opponents disagreed on the prospect of casino gambling in the state. Havenstein argued against casinos on the grounds that they wouldn't significantly improve the economy. Hemingway was more amenable to casinos, suggesting that current groups that run charity gambling operations could oversee new casinos. Smolin voiced support for a small number of casinos to provide a boost to New Hampshire's economy.[4]

All three candidates found consensus in their opposition to the Affordable Care Act and support for school choice in New Hampshire public schools.[4]


Personal

Hemingway and his wife, Katie, have two children and currently reside in Bristol.[3]
